Have you heard of #The100DayProject? It’s basically a global art project that encourages you to commit 100 days to do something daily – be it painting or writing or knitting or cooking or learning how to sing a different song, the list goes on. It’s sort of an Instagram thing (hence the hashtag), where anyone anywhere can join in as a community. But then again, I’m sure you can also do it even if you don’t have Instagram.
I had been seeing some artists using the hashtag, but I didn’t know what it’s all about until a few weeks ago. This year is the project’s fifth year running, and the 2018 edition started on April 3rd. If you missed the date, don’t worry, because you can still join in! Any day is a good start date, but it just made it more fun and gave us more momentum to start together. 😉
I decided to participate this year, and committed to painting something every day for 100 days. (In case you were wondering, no, there’s no one to check you or to make sure you’re keeping it up. Also, it’s OK if you miss a day or two – this is just an initiative to encourage you to keep on going in your passion!)
Today’s only Day 7, so I still have a long long way to go! Every day it’s quite a mad situation trying to find time to actually paint, but I try to squeeze in at least 20 to 30 minutes. I also sometimes have to paint with a preschooler bombarding me with all kinds of requests and a toddler pulling my arm, but well, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do. I will keep on goinggggg! #cuedramaticmusic #momslife
Are you doing it too? Or would you like to join in? If you are, let me know what you’re doing for 100 days!
